Make some black cat's lucky day
A CAT rescue centre is showing its claws and fangs for Halloween.
Cuddles Cat Rescue in Wilton Road, Humberston, will be holding a special event to raise awareness for black felines.
Out of the 100 cats rescued by the centre, roughly 50 of them are black, and all are in desperate need of rehoming.
On Wednesday, October 31, the volunteers at Cuddles Cat Rescue will open their cat flaps for a party event.
Urgently seeking two / four bedroom properties for our lengthy list of possible suitable tenants with the lowest fees in town and excellent turn around rate for sourcing and managing.

Owner Julie Burrell said: "We have a lot of cats with us and some in foster homes.
"At least half of our cats are black and as it is Halloween coming up we thought we would try to raise some awareness.
"Cats are easier to look after than dogs and are always good fun.
"We will be holding a party for anyone to come along and have a look at the black cats we have here.
"There will be a variety of Halloween-themed refreshments and it would be great if children came dressed up.
"It would also be nice if instead of playing tricks people could bring the cats a treat.
"All the money we raise through our fundraising goes back into the charity and we need support more than ever with the amount of cats we have now."
The event will take place from noon until 6pm.
Volunteer Sharon Landrey, from Waltham, added: "There will be lots to do on the day, including a quiz, face painting and food.
"The cattery will be decorated and we are hoping to get as many people to come as possible.
"We will also have some cat-related goods for sale.
"We want anyone to visit and we are promoting responsible ownership."
